Why We Run
Team Woodside runs to provide life-giving care to at-risk children living in orphanages in Thailand and India. Each sponsorship brings help and hope to a child in need, shining the love of Christ in the darkest of circumstances.
Akha House of Light – Thailand
The Akha House of Light is home to 80 at-risk children. Sponsorship provides each child with a safe place to live, clothing, three meals a day, a Christian education, and health care. Most of all, it allows us to show these children the abundant love of their Heavenly Father.
Magimai Girls’ Home – India
The Magimai Orphanage is a safe haven for 15 girls who’ve lost their parents to AIDS. As a runner, your sponsorship cares for a child’s physical and spiritual needs with the long-term goal of adoption by a loving Christian family in India.
